    Lionel Messi - 94 - Normal
    5.0
    Supreme CAM, OK Striker
    By mscfilho1, 11-10-2018

    I packed this card in my first Squad Battles reward and was eager to test him in as many ways as possible.

    I tried him as CF, as ST, as LF/RF and as a CAM. My opinion is that as a striker (CF/ST/LF/RF) he is not as good as he could be. Altough it is an incredible card, he can (and will) be easily pushed off the ball against fairly strong defenders.

    The pacing, in this game, makes it even harder to play him as an striker.

    However, as a CAM he becomes the supreme midfielder: awesome passing, superb dribling skills and with his shooting skills, he will be like a secret weapon in the midfield, coming from behind to score goals. Damn, he can even win some headings in the midfield.


    • Dribling Skills
    • Shooting
    • FK Acuracy
    • Good Pacing (for a CAM).
    • Strength
    • Stamina - He can handle an entire game, but in an extra-time situation, he wont be dead.
    • Penalties - He is just OK at penalties.

    Simply The G.O.A.T

    The little Messiah is my favourite player and in my opinion, the greatest to ever grace the football pitch with his presence. I make it my goal every FIFA to buy the best Messi I can afford and score goals that only the little magician scores in real life as a way of showing appreciation to his talents. Safe to say then I'd been saving up for this card ever since the launch of FIFA 19 and let me tell you.. he does not disap...

    GOAT?

    Lionel Messi has always been a problem to use in FUT, but in FIFA 19 it seems that they have finally found a way to make him incredible. Messi, for me, finds ways to score lots of important goals. The first game I played with him I came up against someone who was much better at the game then me. However, Messi made the difference I was able to score 3 of the 3 shots I took with him. His finesse shot is virtually unstop...
